[en] We establish quantum thermodynamics for open quantum systems weakly coupled to
their reservoirs when the system exhibits degeneracies. The first and second law of thermodynamics
are derived, as well as a finite-time fluctuation theorem for mechanical work and energy and matter
currents. Using a double quantum dot junction model, local eigenbasis coherences are shown to play
a crucial role on thermodynamics and on the electron counting statistics.
